you are exactly right. my brother Mark has phenomenal talent and accomplishments, and has had much more influence on my music than people know; possibly more than Mark himself knows. i do wish that he and i could make more music someday, although it seems to be as close to impossible as possible. the article referred to didn't have Mark listed as an influence, and i deeply regret the omission.
keith emerson has indeed contributed significantly to the Bob Moog Foundation.
now if only everyone who has ever downloaded an illegal song would give $5, just one time, to the Bob Moog Foundation, we'd be able to save every tape, plus build the Moogseum in no time flat. the two biggest influences in pop music in the 20th century were Les Paul's solid-body electric guitar, and Bob Moog's synthesizer.
you are right, yogi bhajan revealed the name to me, (because i asked him to) and it has served me to remind *me* to be a selfless servant, ... plus, it *does* make it easy to not get mistaken for the 4 other David Ball guys in the music business. however, Sikh (chk yr spelling) is the 5th largest spiritual practice in the world, and stands alone, not really being based on any previous practice. David is Hebrew, Ball is British/French, and i have Cherokee blood too. i'm proud of every aspect!
for those who say you can't record in a house, you should see Sun Records, or RCA Studio B, or the room where led zep recorded whole lotta love. everybody in one room.
the trick is to have people who can really play (such as teenage love), then put the right mics in the right places. then, get out of the way.
make no mistake, this record is a document of real rock n roll, and it is frakking searing.
